Change, self-initiated or not, moves us through a transition zone which creates a sense of groundlessness. The scary in-between state of letting to go of what we’ve always known and/or done to allow for something new (a new habit, pattern, way of thinking or acting) to emerge.

In Yoga and Ayurveda we believe that digestion is the cornerstone of good health; everything that is taken in must be chewed and broken down. We must be able to assimilate that which will contribute to our wellbeing and release that which would become toxic if built up.
